Are there BAS spoilers in this conversation? If not then sweet, if yes, I'll wait till I play.

I have to be honest, I'm done with Rapture and its "under sea opressive atmosphere"

I had to put my hand in front of the screen for some parts, which I'm assuming are parts of footage from the first moments of the game, I can't understand why anyone who is interested in playing burial at sea would want to see that! But with that being said, an awesome and informative interview!!  

(I wish I got to play minerva's den! I payed for it and downloaded it but it never worked because of region complications. Damn you PSN!!!)

I hope Burial at Sea resembles Bioshock1, 2 and Minerva's Den a little bit.

I loved the soundtrack in Infinite. Especially at the end, then the credits roll and the first song just fits so well with what just happened.

Clever....

The soundtrack is one of the two really well done things in Infinite...

As much as I enjoyed the game I must admit that it had way to many flaws in logic and gameplay, but the music was top notch. Hoping BaS is an improvement.

I thought the game was a disappointment and the music annoying.

And your a prime example of the basic gamers that dumbed down mainstream games such as call of duty and their producers target.

@hekifier - Totally disagree. It's a Brilliant game. You went out of your way to say something nasty and thought there was some internet door prize for coming in first to a game comment area you don't like to say something nasty and immature. Awesome. Good for you, you are so talented. - Back to the game and the video, the interview about the music was a video I wanted to see. You can go to iTunes and get compilations of the original music, hopefully these guys will put out a soundtrack.

@gadlaw @hekifier Calling Bioshock Infinite brilliant is an insult to good taste, to logic, to good storytelling, to good character creation, to good gameplay.

Sigh, calling Infinite good is like stating that the whole gaming world really sucks. It's like putting ambition and potential over the real execution, the game itself. I guess in your opinion making an overambitious game that failed is still better than a working game with a smaller scope......

I'm a huge Bioshock fan and Ken Levine and the team are flawless at what they do: good story telling giving historical context in a beautiful setting. I agree that Infinite was more ambitious in its story telling and had some plot flaws but non the less was still a master piece..... With that said I sometimes feel Bioshocks gameplay sometimes lacks as it's pretty repetitive but then I don't think you could tell the bioshock story through any other medium as it wouldn't be the same.

@LordCrash88 @gadlaw @hekifier The only thing it may lack is total logic. It had a type of logic that was somewhat inconsistent, but forgivable. I loved the characters, especially Anna (Elizabeth), and the villians. The story was very good.

It was a good game. I  really liked it. I do not like (find fun) 95 percent of the games out there, or at least will not buy them.

The hype helped me to notice this game, and I am glad I bought it. I am glad it is not like the original Bioshock, as I couldn't get into that one.
